Curly Contessa is a giftware line that celebrates the beauty of Black women. We give naturalistas across the globe a cute and trendy way to celebrate one another!
After noticing a lack of diversity in the holiday shopping market founder, Kristin Farmer put her talents to work and birthed a culturally relevant collection of products that showcase the elegant versatility of natural hair textures.
Curly Contessa made its debut in 2017 with the infamous ‘Naturalistas Wrapping Paper’ and has steadily grown to include a variety of glasses and the ‘Let it Snow’ sleepwear collection.
If you’ve been searching for a way to show your love of curly tresses then look no further, we’ve got the perfect gift for you!
Hi, I'm Kristin!
If you’ve ever struggled to find a gift that’d make your loved one feel special, you are not alone. I found myself sitting on the bed one day wanting to celebrate everything I am and have accomplished and I couldn't find anything that represented me so, Curly Contessa was born.
I’ve always had a knack for creating art, but I consider Curly Contessa an outlet of personal expression. Curly Contessa is the matriarch of curly tresses. She is a melaninated boss babe that marches to her own drum.
Curly Contessa was started to celebrate the milestones that I have overcome with all the craziness in between. At 19 I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety and by age 29 a new team of doctors discovered that I was bipolar II with a borderline personality disorder.
I wanted to celebrate the loved ones who’ve walked beside me through this journey so I decided to make my own gifts with my illustrations.
Running this business isn’t easy. It requires a lot of diligence and thinking ahead of the curve, but it also serves as a catalyst to celebrate myself and gives me a reason to keep pushing when I’m down.
I want to personally thank you for investing in my vision by gifting your favorite naturalista with a cultural reflection of her beauty!
